quick question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
i have a question but not quite sure how to get it accross so il try my best.

if i stabilize my cpu @ 4.2ghz on 1.5v and then attempt to up my NB freq and the system become unstable does this mean i can exclude my cpu voltage due to it being stable earlyer and just focus on my NB volts untill it becomes stable again? sorry if its hard understand,

Pretty much yes, but there's a catch. Since the CPU and NB are so closely packed, one's voltage could potentially impact the other; however as a general rule in order to OC the NB you generally must increase the NB voltage, not the CPU voltage.
